Admin Notification of Authoring Request

Hi everyone!

Further to this thread (Pending Your request is currently being reviewed by Your Platform Name Here staff and should be updated shortly),

When some one signs up in the Studio for authoring, the workflow assures the author with a message like ‘Your request is currently being reviewed by Your Platform Name Here staff and should be updated shortly’…

This gives the impression that there would be an admin notification (preferably email), like what one gets when exporting a course.

However, there doesnt seem to be any email / notification to the admin.

Is there any thing that needs explicit configuration for this?

How does the admin know about the pending request?

Request your kind inputs.

Thanks!

Hi @spurgeonbj,

according to code e-mail will be sent to the one specified in CMS configuration (cms.env.json file for pre-juniper releases) as

"FEATURES": {
  "STUDIO_REQUEST_EMAIL": "admin@example.com",

@andrey.kryachko, Thanks a ton for your kind help!!

This worked!

Got a mail notification from the template at

emails/course_creator_admin_user_pending.txt

God bless you!!

The current link sent in the mail
/admin/course_creators/coursecreator/
results in a 404.

I guess if this could be modified as
/admin/auth/user/<userid>/change/
would be ideal… till the intended URL /course_creators/coursecreator/ is made to work properly.

Can I report this as a bug?

Great discovery @andrey.kryachko !

Are you aware of any documentation of these kind of stuff (apart from code)?

Thanks!

It’s currently lacking. But there is @regis who is leading an effort to improve that kind of documentation, as part of the Release working group:

@andrey.kryachko @spurgeonbj Would one of you want to document this in the official doc?

[Edit] To know how, you can refer to @regis’ post linked above:

If you’d like to contribute, I’ll be more than happy to add you to the openedx-btr-wg organization on Github. You can then directly push your changes to the PR. Just send me a personal message with your Github nickname.
